Hello, today I'm here to announce a significant upgrade to ARGOS eKYC's identity recognition capabilities. This update allows ARGOS eKYC to standardize for all languages and protocols, and to extract additional information based on the rules displayed on identity documents of various countries.

Previous Limitations

The original ARGOS eKYC had several limitations.
1.
It was difficult to verify identities documented in certain languages. For example, the birth date on an Egyptian ID card written in Arabic looks like this: “١٩٩٣/٠٥/٢٨”. This numeral system is different from the international standard we use and interpret, making it difficult for the previous ARGOS eKYC AI to recognize and convert this data.
2.
It was also challenging to derive results from non-standardized notations. For instance, it was tough to map the nationality information marked as "CHINA R.P" to standardized country codes.
3.
Given that the protocol of information displayed on ID cards varies by country, analyzing this to extract additional information was also a complex process.
These phenomena are due to the different notation and printing methods formed according to the settled culture and communication methods of each country, and the direct extraction of such notation methods by Template OCR made it difficult to use them in a standardized way.

Innovative Updates

However, with this update, ARGOS KYC has overcome these limitations.
1.
First, it is now capable of standardized recognition of all languages and local notations. For example, it is now possible to convert an Arabic date notation “١٩٩٣/٠٥/٢٨” to the standardized date format "[1993-05-28]".
2.
Also, recognition and standardized conversion of non-standardized notations became possible. The term "CHINA R.P" can be converted into the standardized ISO3166-based country code "CHN".
3.
Finally, we can now analyze country-specific protocols to derive additional information. For example, the ID number "851102-1599321" can be analyzed to extract additional information like "Date of birth: 1985-11-02, Gender: Male".
Now, ARGOS eKYC, through a significant update that interprets each country's notation method and standardizes it, allows faster and more accurate identity verification for some local IDs that had been difficult to support.
It can now support all identity documents that have different notations from the international standard (ISO), such as Arabic and Japanese.

In Conclusion

Through these upgrades, ARGOS eKYC has enabled more accurate and diverse identity verification. This greatly contributes to increasing the accuracy and efficiency of KYC (Know Your Customer) procedures and is expected to be applied in various fields such as finance, security, and public services. It's a wonderful example of how the advancement of AI can make our lives more convenient and improved.
